Chanel Égoïste
Hard to find. The formula is somewhat identical to that of the Edt's, yet the Ambrettsamen/Sandalwood presence is increased in here and finally exudes a richer, softer, dirtier and warmer aroma, a kind of really sexy and uncontroversial (while the Eau de Toilette formula emphasizes the presence of rosewood and aromatics that - running through spices and dark roses - wander to a finally oriental/wooden base). The soil quality and longevity are finally stronger. This fragrance is at the same time super stylish and dirty in a rather erotic musk amber style

Cologne Concentrée? Commercialisme Concoctée.
Much has been harped on about this magic and rarefied elixir called Egoïste Cologne Concentrée. You can almost hear a choir and see a beam of light cleave the sky in twain at the mere mention of this seemingly contradictory fragrance category: the concentrated cologne. And therein lies my chagrin.

For the life of me I cannot figure out what the difference is between this and the regular edition! I swear to God all those people who rave about the CC are either lying or else under some psychological illusion - "Ooooh, it came out and got discontinued....it must be amazing then!....yes I can smell it!!! Yes!!! Yes!!! It's so different!!!" Uhh..NOPE!

Thankfully, there are many people who realise the folly of this condition and can categorically say that there is precious little if no discernible difference between the two versions in terms of smell. Some will concede that the CC lasts a couple of hours longer, but that hasn't been the case in my experience. In fact, there are some who say the regular edition (as long as it's not the reformulated version) actually lasts a bit longer.

And this makes sense to me; was Chanel trying to reinvigorate the flagging sales of the fragrance by creating a new name for the established 'eau de toilette' category - the "cologne concentrée"? It honestly wouldn't surprise me if it was revealed that this was just such a marketing tactic - perhaps a play on the double C's of Chanel. No doubt some other company will soon come out with an EdT but call it an "Eau De Parfum Dilué"? Please!
